OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A Democrat running for Oklahoma governor is challenging the candidacy of two independents in the race, including one he alleges failed to disclose a guilty plea to a felony crime more than a decade ago.

Democratic state Rep. Joe Dorman on Tuesday challenged the candidacy of independents Joe Sills and Kimberly Willis, both of Oklahoma City.

Dorman claims the 34-year-old Sills did not disclose on his candidacy form a guilty plea in 2000 to a felony crime of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Sills said Tuesday he thought the question on the candidacy form applied only to embezzlement-related crimes and that he plans to contest Dorman's challenge.

Dorman alleges Willis was not a registered independent for the amount of time required by law.
